Public Comment:Phelps – Dead Elm that needs to come down. Also, this weekend had atv come by going way to fast and very loud.
Patrolman’s Report: With heavy rain Kosin Road washed out in an area, will need gravel for that area – around 600 feet. Rehr – get enough on Kosin Road to cover it up. Met with Bruce M. on Kosin Road and some water is sitting North & South of his driveway, Brandon can dump some fill dirt in there and fix the ditch area. Doing some shoulder work. Clingerman Road has wash out by corner of bridge, Brandon will fill in and fix. Nehring – can Clingerman Road bridge be put down to 8 ton? Zimmer will check. Getting mowers ready, patching, Koch Road – pulled out of there for now, upstream side is done. Nehring – measured the ditches on Koch Road. Rehr - not budgeted for anything else on Koch Road at this point, landowner is going to call the State to complain. Licht – lower ditch is filled in from the upper part. Rehr – The town board met with the landowner and was willing to work with them but they decided they no longer agree with the towns idea for the ditch. Our employee felt threatened and the Board will not tolerate it. Equipment is moved from Koch and at this point in the year it will not be moved back until time/budget allows.

Road Tour:$20,000 in mix and equipment to do blade patching/wedging, $20,000 in ditching, $80,000 for Weinke Road, $221,131 in road budget to spend this year. Could chip seal approximately 5 miles. Brandon – will come up with a list of roads for crack filling. $10,000 for crack filling. Total footage is 3,600 feet for wedging. Per road ratings from last year some of the roads that would benefit from chip sealing would be the roads rated 6 - Diamond Hill, Granite Drive, Maple Hill, Schanke Road, Ulrich Road, Wilson Road for a total of 7.6 miles. Cut out Granite Drive and Maple Hill so we stay in budget, will be roughly 4 to 4.5 miles. Ulrich Road should be blade patched.
